Choose Your Own Adventure


CYOA are assignments to help you take information you have learned and think about it in a new and creative way.  You not only review the units we have studied in class, but you also get a chance to stretch your critical thinking, organizing, and creative skills!

There are three types of assignments: 

1.  Artist: An artist focuses on pictures to learn about the past. They produce drawings and crafts to present information to others in unique ways. They enjoy creating work that shows off their skill and talent.





2.  Detective: A detective closely examines historical facts and puts them together in many forms. They work with charts to represent information clearly and logically. They enjoy answering questions and finding details.


3.  Profiler:  A profiler is mostly interested in people and how they think. They like to imagine themselves in historical situations and write about how they would have reacted. They usually present their findings through short writings.
